Written by American playwright Liz Duffy Adams and directed by Christina Traister, associate professor of acting and movement, "Dog Act" is a capstone thesis production featuring the 2018 MFA Acting candidates in MSU's Department of Theatre. 

The show follows traveling performer Zetta Stone, her companion Dog and her diverse theatre troupe in this post-apocalyptic vaudeville as they journey through the wilderness of the former Northeast U.S., heading toward a gig in China.

"Dog Act" features graduate designs, along with direction, choreography and vocal coaching by cast members.

The show will be performed in the Arena Theatre at MSU's Wharton Center from March 16 through March 25. General admission is $15; seniors and faculty, $13; and students, $10.

A director pre-show discussion will be held on March 18 at 1:15 p.m. A post-show discussion is scheduled for March 22, following the 7:30 p.m. performance.
